After twenty-five years of marriage, the emergence of love handles and receding hairlines, Alice and Henry have hit a physical plateau. With a “Sex for Dummies” guidebook in hand, Alice convinces Henry into a weekend of alone time in the hopes of seducing him and unearthing her inner vixen. Henry, however, wants to keep things the way they are – comfortable and easy.
Exploring every fantasy from leather to lace, Alice and Henry portray every couple’s desire to grow together but maintain individuality. If you love comedy with hilarity and emotion then Sexy Laundry will provide you with a great evening of entertainment.
This show deals with adult humour, language and situations.
Performances in dinner theatre at the Best Western Plus Cobourg Inn and Conference Centre, Cobourg
